So quick question, and it may seem silly... how do you remove the glovebox? There are a few hex screws behind the latch area that is able to be pried off easily, but I was hesitant to remove them without knowing that is the correct way to go about it.

Appreciate any help.

its more painful than that with the side moldings and cover. :) Getting the door molding back on and over that cover is a pita.

Thank you to all those who compiled this helpful information. This is why I love car forums. Hardwired my Viofo A229 Pro using this method and it works flawlessly. Powers up with ignition and transitions to parking mode a few seconds after turning the car off. Fantastic find whoever discovered that hidden unused connecter. It took me a few minutes of searching even after removing the glovebox because Lotus had wrapped it in foam, presumably for NVH reasons. I used the AliExpress connector mentioned above and wired it to the end of the Viofo hardwire kit and it was plug-and-play after that. Very clean install with no visible wires.

We have received the product and would like to report the results.

The connector model number 174928-2 matched.
The product website seemed to offer a choice of pre-assembled ones, but due to the actual role and color difference, I purchased the unassembled ones and assembled them.
The 3-pin connector seemed to be one for the battery, one for accessory power, and one for ground (GND).
It is smarter than taking it from the fuse box and I am personally happy with it.

Thank you Porter for telling me about the connectors!

Sorry for being an idiot, but if I want to connect something to disconnector do I just use the ground and accessory?
